Will the Congressional Budget Hurt People in Your Name?

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“The State harms you, hurts your family, damages your industry, and destroys your community. It even kills people.” – Jim Babka

 

ACTION ITEM

 

I just sent a letter to my members of Congress using DownsizeDC.org’s campaign to cut federal spending.

 

You can borrow from what I wrote…

 

The Obama and Paul Ryan budgets both seek the same thing: MORE federal spending.

 

I DO NOT CONSENT!

 

Every penny you spend is taken BY FORCE.

 

And all of it funds chaos, NOT government.

 

* You create resentment by stationing troops in 150+ countries

* You aid corrupt dictators

* Your foreign policy inspires terrorism

* Your drug war destabilizes our southern neighbors and creates the world’s largest prison population  

* Your regulations kill job-creation and ruin lives

* Your interventions in health care and education improves neither, but make both more expensive

 

Stop meddling abroad. Stop meddling at home. Reduce the harm you do — CUT SPENDING!

 

–END OF LETTER–

 

You can send your letter via DownsizeDC.org’s Educate the Powerful System.
